Returning to camping after a many year hiatus due to promising my brother-in-law to do some rough camping.

I've never used a hammock but am hearing good things and will most likely be giving it a whirl to keep my fat-*** elivated over the lesser beings.

On that note, can anyone point me in the direction of figuring out when a pad or UnderQuilt would be necessary temperature/wind range wise. I'm a big heavy guy that carries my insulation all year round and need to figure if I'll need this for some camping this September.

Thanks and thanks for such an informative site!
